Every Friday we raise a glass to celebrate some of the best new boozy bottles to hit store shelves. This week we’re past Halloween and onto something much scarier: election day. Our dark circles are evidence of presidential campaign fatigue, and our fruitless efforts to filter out truth from the ever-growing cloud of negativity, apathy, and Twitter wars. It’s time to put aside all the bickering for a fresh start with the freshest packaging designs (and more importantly right now, what’s inside them).

Momentán, by András Erdei and Dori Novotny
With every kind of smiley emoji represented, from silly to sobbing, this label is a manic mood chart for our highs and lows. After all the drama, we would welcome some lighthearted humor (and a sigh of relief) at any election viewing party. Here’s to only smiles ahead?

Vrolijkheid, by Typical Organization
As expected by its Dutch name, which translates to happiness and cheer, this packaging helps us ease into patriotic colors with a crisp, vibrant look that’s surely light-years ahead of tacky political bumper stickers. Beer never looked so damn presidential.

Hudson Whiskey, by Alireza Jajarmi
As voices and tensions rise toward the final breaking point, all we want is to take a deep breath and reclaim our zen. Won’t you join us and unwind with a glass of Prohibition-era bourbon, evoking the golden ratio of handmade traditions and forward-looking minimalism?

Osiris Brew, by Stepan Solodkov
At the end of the day, all this whining and moaning is a moot point if you don’t cast a vote. If you need an extra kick to your bum to head to the polls (or the nearest mailbox for absentee folks), then let these series of free-spirited digital marks, projecting the rebellious style of classic spray paint and street art, remind you to Get Out the Vote.
